Very light, beautiful, hard to drive headphones
cambaz, 23.12.2020
It came in a nice box, well-presented. It's light and feels light on the head. Hardly touches ears. The whole item looks and feels very high-quality, material-wise.
I intend to use these for listening to casual music. I need a relaxed listening experience and this gives me just it. It's amazingly detailed, with a very wide soundstage. If you want to focus on the music, you may do so but for that a Sennheiser HD650 might be a better choice, with relatively non-existent soundstage and in-your-face mids. The K712 feels more in the "front rows", rather than "on the stage"
Also, for immersive gaming (can't speak for competitive) these're amazing.
Don't let the 62 Ohm impedance fool you into thinking you'll be driving these just fine with your typical smartphone. You'll still get a good experience, but you'll most likely benefit a lot from a decent headphone amplifier.
For a casual gamer or listener, these might very well be the endgame.
If you want to get a similar experience, with cut corners in every aspect but mostly the cost,I suggest the fidelio X2HR. But if you have a good amp and can stretch your budget for the K712, you'll not be dissapointed.

awesome gear
Viktoria K , 23.09.2020
I went down in the audiophile rabbithole right before quarantine started, and I ordered these headphone with a bunch of others back in February, and this one was the winner for me. I tried more expensive headphones for the first time in my life and I don't have a lot of knowledge about audiophile gear so you know take this with a grain of salt.

I meanly use this headphone for music listening, but my friend tried it for gaming and he was impressed with the soundstage. It has a very well balanced sound with an emphasis on the mid range, it has a lot of clarity, I would call this bright neutral sound, which I love, but I guess it's not for everyone. I would definitely recommend an amp with it, I only use the btr5 and for me that's good enough.

Compared to the AKG 240 MK2 it has more clarity and bass, although this is not for bass heads. And compared to the Sennheiser HD650 it's more lively, and it has more mid range imho. It can get warmer than the Sennheiser, (physically warmer, I never got warm ears with the HD650, but I got them with these) and the Sennheiser can provide a more laid back listen, but for me wasn't detailed enough. On the flip side I guess you could say the AKG can be more fatiguing than the HD650, but since I don't listen to music too loudly I don't find that a problem.

The built quality is good enough and they are extremely comfy to wear for long periods too. One star minus on this regard because I like headphones where you plug both cans in better.

All in all, I fell in love with it's sound signature (and the look!) and since February I use it a lot and I'm still in love.

Really good audio and...
Frederik K, 07.07.2020
very nice wear comfort.
The only reason I haven't given these headphones a top rating is that there's a bit "break in" period where the memory foam feels a bit too hard but after that these cans are the most comfortable I've ever had.
Especially for long sessions where even pressure is paramount
Definitely recommendable if you don't have a narrow and small head with small ears, which I din't ;-)
The cups are deep enough that your ears shouldn't touch the inside and the head band flexible enough to give an even pressure atop of ones head. You might want to consider "working" the top leather strap some, since it is made of a thicker quality leather that seem stiff depending on your heads shape. Just flex it real good and the leather will soon feel softer.
A non issue for me
I've read many places that people recommend the use of a pre-amp with these to make them "pop" for real, and that may very well be the case. However I have NO problem driving them of the on-board audio on my motherboard (z390 Aorus Master from Gigabyte). But then I don't own an amp so I'm not sure what I'm missing.

All in all worth a try if your looking for a pair of open back headphones with very good wear comfort. +4 hours is no problem for me - no discomfort and good audio for sure
I rate them 4? stars

Amazing headphones
Pattern, 26.05.2019
I bought these mainly to produce and listen to techno and house. At first I was a bit dissapointed, since they lack a bit of bass, but over the hours of listening to music they start feeling amazing. They are very good for mixing and listening to any kind of music. I would recommend using a piece of software to boost your lows however when listening to music heavier on bass.

Comfort wise also they feel as if you don't even have them on at times. I could have them on the whole day compared to others that really fatigue your ears. However I wouldn't recommend them to people that have a smaller head since they are pretty large and some of my friends that tried them said that they keep sliding down their head.

Overall they really are amazing and probably the best studio headphones for mixing at this price range.
